Trip.com Group, the parent company of Trip.com, Ctrip, Skyscanner, and Qunar, unveiled its all-new brand at an event held to celebrate the company's 20th anniversary.
Founded in 1999, the company has grown to become the leading provider of online travel in China and Asia , with 400 million users. The change in nomenclature from 'Ctrip.com International, Ltd.' to 'Trip.com Group Ltd.' is a reflection, says CEO of Trip.com Group Jane Sun, of the company's next major endeavour, as it enters a new phase.
"Twenty years ago, we started our journey with our first call center in China . In 2013, we embarked on our second journey with our 'All-In-Mobile' strategy, which saw 80-90% of transactions move to our mobile platforms," said Trip.com Group CEO Jane Sun . "Now, it's time for us to set out once more, with our sights on delivering the the best travel experience to our customers, no matter where in the world they may be."
Alongside the new brand, Trip.com Group today formalized its 'G2 Strategy' -- 'Great Quality for Global Customers' -- which will be the driving force behind the company's next phase.
Speaking at the event, Co-founder and Executive Chairman of Trip.com Group James Liang noted that the new brand and strategy are not a deviation from the company's roots, but an affirmation of the unified identity and mission of its platforms.
